About me

Need help with Relationships,  Panic, Anxiety, Depression or an Addiction/Dependence?

I can help you understand and manage your Relationship Difficulties, Anxious Thoughts and Feelings, Low Moods, and Dependencies: alcohol/substances, love, sex, gambling and other compulsive behaviours. 

If you are struggling with difficult emotions or feeling ‘out of control’, talking about your thoughts and feelings can enable you to find better ways of dealing with challenging situations and reduce anxiety levels. Therapy can support your recovery from Low Self-Esteem, Anxiety, Depression or Self-Destructive Behaviours by helping you to understand underlying issues and developing healthier relationships with yourself and others. 

How can I help?

I have worked for over 30 years working in the field of Mental Well Being supporting people with a range of emotional difficulties. I am therefore highly experienced working with problematic, painful and sensitive issues.

I specialise in:

  • Relationship Problems
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Depression / Self-Esteem
  • Addiction / Dependencies / Compulsive Behaviours
  • Supporting family members
  • Codependency
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Trauma

Cognitive Behavioural Therapies and Psychodynamic Therapy

I offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapies and Psychodynamic Therapy to help you break the upsetting cycles of painful relationships, anxiety, low mood and unwanted behaviours.  Working together you will develop alternative ways of thinking and behaving which will reduce your emotional distress and help you to address problematic relationships. 

Mindfulness

I also integrate the practices of mindfulness which fosters a non-judgemental and compassionate approach towards ourselves and our relationship with others. Mindful awareness is a powerful tool that can help reduce anxiety and the negative emotions that increase stress and trigger unwanted behaviours.

You will learn to:

  • Let go of unwanted thoughts
  • Be less reactive
  • Manage stress and anxiety

I work closely and in collaboration with my clients to create bespoke recovery plans which address their individual needs. Your hopes and fears can be expressed in order to work towards your personal goals.

Working together

I offer a comfortable therapeutic environment in my private studio. I also offer sessions online. 

Sessions are 50 minutes.

If you would like to try without the commitment, I offer the introductory session at a reduced rate of £80. This will allow you to meet with me and see if I may be someone you feel comfortable to work with.

It is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions and to find out how counselling can help.

If you would like to discuss things further or to find out if therapy is right for you, please feel free to call me.

All calls and appointments will be treated in the strictest of confidence.

Member organisations

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
